The following is a picture story of the site in March 2009 -- for last article providing full written coverage, please read the February 2009 installment here.

Cranes seem to join hands over the Tower 2 section of the site, in the Southeastern corner, looking outward toward the World Financial Center, unfinished Goldman Sachs Tower, old NY Telephone building, and new 7 World Trade Center (right).

Tower 2 site is in foreground, Freedom Tower steel can be see in the center of the picture in the background, and the new Goldman Sachs tower is nearing completion. View from southeastern corner of south looking northwestardly.

Took a train uptown -- view from 7th Avenue in the Village, looking south -- you can see the top of the new Goldman Sachs tower jutting above the buildings.

Back downtown -- viewing the huge crane put up to start preparing the Tower 2 site at the Northeast corner of the new WTC site. Freedom Tower steel rises in the background center, just below the existing World Financial Center buildings. This picture is taken from the cemetery at St. Paul's Church.

Another view of the huge crane put in place to start preparing the Tower 2 site, looking westward at the Northeastern corner of the new WTC site..

All pictures above were taken with a Casio Exlim EX-S10, except for the top-most video (Freedom Tower Construction -- Overview from Above), which was taken with Sony PC330.
